'Dores third in final poll

April 28, 2017

Vanderbilt was third in the final poll of the National Ten Pin Coaches Association (NTCA). The Commodores were fifth in the March voting but jumped two spots based upon their strong performance at the NCAA Championship earlier this month.

National champion McKendree was a unanimous choice to lead the final poll. Three of the top five and four of the top seven ranked teams are members of the Southland Bowling League, of which the Commodores were champions in 2017.
